Bidiversity Conference

The Central West Environment Council is supporting this Greening Bathurst conference to be held in Bathurst on November 10-11. 

If you haven’t done so already (and I apologise for cross-postings), please forward this to your networks as I’m sure it will be of interest to your members.   More bums on seats needed!

AND the next CWEC meeting is scheduled for Sunday 1st November in MUDGEE (for a nice change).   Details of venue to be confirmed. 

You are invited to the

BIODIVERSITY DREAMING conference, CSU Bathurst, November 10-11

What can we learn from reflecting on biodiversity in the Central West/Bathurst Region /Wiradyuri Country from 1815 to 2115.  Hear the views of 40 farmers, land managers, Wiradyuri/Aboriginal people, artists, historians & scientists.

An exciting mix of speakers (including Bruce Pascoewhose book is pictured) and poster presenters will provide the delegates knowledge, research results and local wisdom of land management for biodiversity, particularly in the agricultural landscapes of the Central West of NSW.   Be part of the conversation: spots for posters are still available.

The cost is $250 for two days; concession tickets available as are scholarships for Aboriginal students (particularly years 11 & 12) and CSU students.

There is also a two-day post-conference tour to discover the natural history of the historic Cox’s Road (and river) guided by Professor David Goldney.  Be quick; only 22 seats for this.
